I AM A WOODTURNER BY TRADE NOW IN SEMI RETIREMENT MODE,
MY WIFE AND I MOVED FROM OUTER LONDON A FEW MONTHS AGO TO THE OXFORDSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE.
I NOW HAVE A GREAT GARDEN NOT TO BIG AND I GROW MY OWN VEGETABLES AND I GROW OVER 2000 BEDDING PLANTS FROM SEED EACH YEAR, THE PLANTS GO TO MY FAMILY AND WE USE LOTS IN OUR GARDEN AS WE HAVE LOADS OF HANGING BASKETS AND POTS.
HAVING BIG FINGERS I HAD TO FIND AN EASIER WAY OF SOWING SEEDS SO I INVENTED THE PRECISION SEED SOWER WHICH YOU CAN SEE ME DEMONSTRATING ON MY WEBSITE OR ON YOU TUBE.
GROWING SEED IN PLUGS OR CELLS GIVE YOU A STRONGER PLANT AS IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DISTURBED BY THE THINNING OR PRICKING OUT PROCESS.
ANOTHER INTEREST OF MINE IS SINGING AT PUB KARAOKES I SING MAINLY COUNTRY MUSIC WITH JIM REEVES AND JOHNNY CASH BEING MY FAVOURITES AND THE ANIMALS NO. THE HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN IS A PARTICULAR FAVOURITE.
I WILL POST SOME PICTURES OF MY GREENHOUSE AND GARDEN LATER REGARDS MIKE http://s247.photobucket.com/albums/gg137/miketheglass/?action=view¤t=SeedSower_2.flv

Mike, Welcome to the flower show! We hope you enjoy the time spent on your GardenTenders website. That is a very cool item for garden seeds. I need a seed sower for those pelletized Wave Petunia seeds…Those little beggars are very hard not to loose!

Hi Mike, Welcome aboard. My wife’s sister lived in Henley-On-Thames for about three years, just moved back to the states. She loved the weather and gardens over there. My wife visited her once and brought back a cap for me, I love it and call it a blanket for my head. See you around the site I will check out your invention.
